The system has multiple control capabilities including Ethernet or serial control, local button panels, and remote hard or soft panels. Powerful, easy to use configuration software is supplied as standard to simplify key tasks like salvos and partitioning, as well as integration with other Miranda NVISION and third party routing systems.
